Strengthening supports for children and families 0-8 years

Strengthening supports for children and families 0-8 years

22 Oct 2013

Ageing, Disability and Home Care (ADHC) is changing the way it supports children with disability and their families. Through a series of reforms, children with disability aged 0-8 years and their families will receive supports that address their needs in a stronger and more integrated way. 

Strengthening supports for children and families 0-8 years is a commitment under Stronger Together 2 to improve the way services are provided for children with disability and their families. Every child, regardless of their needs, has the right to participate fully in their community and to have the same choices, opportunities and experiences as other children. 

To achieve this, ADHC will build the capacity of the service system and community to provide comprehensive, coordinated and flexible supports. We will expand the range, availability, quality and flexibility of support services for these children in mainstream settings, supported by the specialist system. We will also increase access to prevention and early intervention support services, particularly at diagnosis and key transition points.  

The Strengthening supports for children and families 0-8 years position paper contains high level strategies to be implemented by ADHC in partnership with key stakeholders. You can download a copy from the Support for children and families section of the ADHC website.
